how much are they for?
4mm is rather small. for an 8" sub i'd like to see 8-9mm atleast. 4mm means that the driver might be a better midwoofer than a subwoofer.

however i gotta see other specs too
Cms, Mms, Vas, etc.

Exactly what I was thinking. Xmax does not look that good. Each is about Rs 550 I think. Will have to check that properly. Samuel Jayaraj suggestes pro audio drivers. Samuel has a source for Eminence sub drivers.

But tell me, if I get a good quality driver like Eminence, would one 12 incher (maybe 200W RMS) be enough for serious thumping?

To add to post no 62, I spoke to Mr Dilip from Dev Electronics in Mumbai. He has peerless india sub drivers. 10 inch= rs 3500. 12 inch= rs 4500. He was not sure the model numbers. But the problem is that I cannot see the drivers.

Tell Dilip your my friend. He will send you the woofers. ask him to speak to Sam before sending. Set.

You are some character Sam. Is there any audio dealer you do not know?

Now, I am in the mood to try something like a horn design or tranmission line when I get hold of some good drivers. I want to do something big. Opinions please anyone.

if Dilip can deliver these drivers go ahead but i doubt their published specs.

http://peerlessaudio.com/products/dr...n3.asp?pname=9
Resonance Frequency Fs 24.7 Hertz
Sensitivity E 89.99 dB
Thiele Small Parameters :
DC Resistance Re 4.72 Ohms
Compliance Cms 435 mm/N
Equivalent Volume Vas 172.25 Ltr.
Moving Mass Mms 95.45 g
Mechanical Q Qms 5.05
Electrical Q Qes 0.34
Total Q Qts 0.32
Piston Area S 518.75 Sq.cm
Force Factor Bl 14.41 N/A
this driver will be ok till about 32Hz in a 65 liter box with a 3" dia 5-6" long port.

i would be interested in this one

Have seen good and ordinary Eminence subs in India. the better ones were 8 and 10". so lets see the specs first.

quite a few but their Fs is too high and the Cms to stiff for home use. pro audio drivers are built to take huge ammounts of power over log duration.
you are looking for a Maruti not a Mack truck.

I have beyma 12 " and i can tell you they are excellent .vivek ,since you happen to have some experience with electronics ,i wud suggest that you try looking for beyma subs .
